Hi, I joined the group because my 7 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with ADHD. After last year we all needed a break this summer. However, now I'm feeling crazy anxious about school starting next week.
My daughter's teacher gave her some books to read over the summer. We tried, but she was so resistant! I also noticed the books seem to be too hard for her. I found some other books for her to read, but didn't have a consistent schedule. I am worried she is going to be really behind, and not only that, I don't have a strategy to get her back on track/caught up.
It is really hard to motivate because she just doesn't want to do it, and I am always so tired (working 50+ hours/week). My husband tries to help, but is less patient than I am, gets too frustrated, and it frequently ends in tears.
I am looking for easy-to-integrate strategies to help her find things she actually wants to read and to help me stay on a consistent schedule with her reading. All ideas welcome!
